Tonnerre de Zeus (a CCI woodie) is not only the best coaster in the park, but also one of the Europe's best-ranked wooden coasters. OzIris is the major steel coaster in the park, not the strongest B&M, but still a fun invert. Then, there is also Goudurix. Enthusiasts do not like this Vekoma. Unfortunately the French do like it, causing long lines. Also, try to ride the low-capacity bobsled coaster (Trace du Hourra) early in the day; it's a lot of fun. Vol d'Icare provides a couple of unexpected pops of air if you don't hold on. Pegase Express provides unique launches in a family coaster.

Besides the coasters there are four water rides for the hot days (flume, splash boat, rapids, and spinning raft ride). Two attractions not to be missed are the lengthy dark ride (Transdemonium) and Le Defi de Cesar. Le Defi de Cesar (by Mack) is one of the best themed and most interactive Mad Houses.
The park has many stands offering sandwiches and hot dogs for those on the go. About a half dozen sandwich shops offer additional sandwiches and crepes. It is always good to try a crepe when in France. There are additional sit-down restaurants, some with counter service, some buffet, and some with full table service. The pizza at Caius Pizzarium is very good. Pizza is prepared to order so expect a 30-minute wait.
Operating Season
Always check the official park schedule, but the park is generally open on most days from April through August, weekends in September/October, the week before Halloween and the last two weeks of the year.

Established Seasonal events
The park's Halloween event runs for only two weeks at the end of October.
